Description 1 of 1
Port Phillip is a zone within the Victoria wine region of Australia. Some call it “Melbourne’s dress circle” for its trend of high-quality boutique wineries located near this major city where they are showcased in bistros and winebars. However, these wines, particularly from the Yarra Valley, have also made a splash in other parts of the world.
The Port Phillip Bay provides cooling climate conditions for most of the area, but parts further inland experience hotter weather. For this reason, the region boasts an array of styles from sparkling, to dry white to light and full-bodied red and sweet.
The subregions of Port Phillip are:
* Macedon Ranges
* Mornington Peninsula
* Yarra Valley
Other wineries which do not fit into these zones have cropped up outside the eastern suburbs of Melbourne and French Island, such as Cannibal Creek, Chestnut Hill, French Island Vineyard and Limbic.
